Colourful Easter Eggs

Last weekend, I´ve been painting Easter eggs with a few friends; we´re doing this every year and always have much fun. This year, I´ve been a bit lazy and tried my Brusho and Bistre colours on white eggs instead of painting - I sprayed a little water on the eggs in order to make them wet enough to hold the colour powders, sprinkled on a few colours and spritzed on some more water, then let the colours flow and mix a bit. You can dry the egg with a paper towel or a heat gun once you´re satisfied.
On my photo, the egg on the left was made with Brushos, and the left one with Bistre colours. Obviously, the Brushos work much better; they really stain the egg and stay intense even if you use a paper towel to dry the egg.

Die Ergebnisse mit den Pigmenten sind doch klasse, eine Technik für Eilige! Ich glaube, ich muss mir morgen ein paar Eier kaufen. Lieben Gruß von Ulrike
